The Bosch eBike System
Drive unit, display, rechargeable battery, app – a perfect team
The advantages of the Bosch eBike system
Developed for limitless freedom: eBikes with components from Bosch eBike Systems offer technical quality of the highest order – and perform as a perfectly coordinated team. The smart system by Bosch eBike Systems – consisting of eBike Flow app, control unit, display, battery and drive unit – ensures a unique eBike experience. The new system generation combines technologically high-quality eBike components with digital functions and thus raises your everyday and leisure riding enjoyment to the next level.
Around 90% of all electric bikes have a mid-drive motor. Most eBike riders have good reason to choose this concept:
The most advanced drive technology is particularly notable for the natural riding sensation it offers, thanks to the direct transmission of power to the chain. Compared to front or rear wheel motors, the mid-drive motor also scores highly for its balanced weight distribution and low centre of gravity. In addition, it offers outstanding drive control, is compatible with all shifting systems and uses less energy than front or rear wheeled motors. Further advantages of the mid-drive motor include the compact construction and low weight. Smooth integration into the frame's design permits greater ground clearance and a lower 'Q' factor.
The secret behind the natural riding sensation is the innovative Bosch technology: The multi-sensor concept ensures perfectly coordinated motor support. The sensors measure torque, speed and acceleration more than 1000 times per second, ensuring perfect interaction between the rider and eBike. The technology not only ensures riding enjoyment, but also the necessary level of safety: if the legal maximum speed is exceeded, the motor support will switch off automatically. Depending on the product line, Bosch mid-drive motors are available in two variants: with support up to 25 km/h or 45 km/h.
The perfect companion for every type: Bosch has various computers and smartphone solutions in its portfolio, thus ensuring the right display for every possible need and requirement.
Purion gives eBikers a swift overview that reduces all of the information to the bare essentials. The Intuvia is an easy-to-operate control centre. With its robust design and great connectivity, Kiox offers all the functions that ambitious sporty riders could need and now also guides them to their destination. Thanks to the 'Touch' function, the Nyon computer can be operated intuitively, while at the same time supporting eBikers as a fitness trainer and guide when they explore unfamiliar locations. By combining the smartphone and COBI.Bike app, the SmartphoneHub is transformed into a fully networked control centre on the handlebar. COBI.Bike ensures eBikers are always connected with the digital world, even on the move.
The smart system, the new system generation from Bosch eBike Systems, is fully connected and always up to date thanks to regular over-the-air updates. The smart displays LED Remote and Kiox 300 connect you to your own eBike via the Flow app and thus enable your connected biking experience.
Bosch batteries are an efficient energy provider with lasting power and are among the most modern eBike batteries on the market. They combine impressive mileage, a long service life and low weight with an ergonomic design and simple handling. The high-quality lithium-ion batteries are equipped with a Battery Management System (BMS), which recognises potential sources of error and protects the battery cells from overload.
Whether navigation, route planning or fitness, intelligent connectivity between your eBike and apps and the online portal makes your riding experience even more individual and comfortable. You have access to numerous features at any time – and are always connected to the digital world, even when you're on the move.
The smart system offers a choice of different riding modes, these adapt the support from the eBike motor according to application and rider type.
* In eMTB mode, the level of support varies between Tour and Turbo riding modes.
** In Tour+ mode, the level of support varies between Eco and Turbo riding modes.
All the available riding modes can be flexibly combined on eBikes with the smart system. Exceptions in this case are Cargo mode and Race mode, which are only available for eBikes with the Cargo Line or the Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition. Specialist dealers can activate up to four modes (in addition to Off mode) and thus adapt them perfectly them to your needs (unless modifications have been excluded by the bicycle manufacturer). With the help of the individual riding modes, you can configure the Race, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, eMTB, Sport, Tour+, Tour and Eco modes via the eBike Flow app according to your individual needs. The support, dynamics, maximum torque and maximum speed can be set within the specified limits.
